I looked at his time at Illinois State. He got fired, but I wouldn't describe him as flaming out. His last team finished a touch less than .500, but finished 86th on KenPom, which is pretty decent. The next year they finished 25-10 and 56th on KenPom under Tim Jancovich, which would at least suggest the program was left in a decent shape.
That's fair, but it's still a team that finished eighth in a 10-team league. 

Like, getting the second shot at all is rare. Getting the sixth and seventh years after some trials and tribulations, also rare. This doesn't mean he's bad or good because in truth, there's no telling. Darell Hazel did the impossible at Kent, and it didn't prove him a good coach. Mark Dantonio wasn't much better than the previous four years at Cincinnati, and he was excellent. 

One thing I'll say for Porter, he's going to a job where you can make a final four, but it's also OK to turn in OK seasons a lot.It's a not-bad spot at all.

Apparently UM was heavily involved in the Russell chase and pulled out because both Brooks and Brown are returning for a 5th year, but Mike Smith and Austin Davis are not.

That's odd. Russell is a pint-sized point and those two are off-guard types. I guess they're adding some backcourt kids and have one guy who was a good recruit last class but hardly played.

I'm still unclear on how these things work. I am told seniors who were out of eligibility won't count against the cap next year, at least for their own team. But if such a kid transfers to another program, does that still apply?

I’m 90 percent sure it does not. Like, you can’t add free players.

Correct, if you transfer, you count.

Trying to manage rosters is something. Anyway, Michigan is at 13 players already, not counting the five seniors who all technically can come back. If Wagner leaves as expected, they could add a transfer or freshman, though I'm not sure Howard wants to manage a roster of 18 guys who all want to play.

Oleg Kojenets, a three-star big man out of Lithuania, has committed to Nebraska, sources told 247Sports.

"I felt that the Big Ten is a great league, it's one of the best ones in the whole Division I," Kojenets said of why he chose Nebraska. "I like the academics as much I did the basketball because it's a big school with lots of opportunities and I chose to go to America to combine those two. I felt Nebraska is going to be a great spot especially with all of the wonderful staff members and the great coach they have there."

The 6-foot-10, 215-pound center moved to the United States last season, playing for Hudson (Ohio) Western Reserve Academy and at one point was ranked in the 247Sports Top100 as a four-star recruit.
"Courage; Generosity; Fairness; Honor; In these are the true awards of manly sport."

FIFY

Anyone can feel free to correct me, but anecdotally it feels like that does not happen all that often anymore, that a guy moves from assistant to head coach, outside of the situations where it's an interim who is too successful for them to go any other direction

I dunno - it feels like something that doesn't happen much. Though Texas Tech appears to have hired a Chris Beard assistant to replace him.

Kristian Lander and Jordan Geronimo withdraw from the portal to stay at IU. I'm still not sold on the Woodson hire but there seems to be some positivity coming out of the program.
